45 Possible Causes for Dyspnea, Malnutrition, Red Blood Cell Distribution Width Increased

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Following anemia and malnutrition treatment, tests were repeated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] high red blood cell distribution width, reflecting an increased variability in the size of red blood cells.A low mean corpuscular volume also appears during the course of[en.wikipedia.org] Patients may complain of: Fatigue Pallor Weakness Headache Palpitations Dizziness Dyspnea Irritability Poor concentration, impaired development Hair loss Impaired temperature[symptoma.com]

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    Folate-deficiency anemia causes symptoms that are common for all types of anemia, like fatigue, irritability, headaches, diminished concentration ability, dyspnea, and palpitations[symptoma.com] Malnutrition occurs due to having a diet low in vitamins and having overcooked foods.[gleneaglesglobalhospitals.com] Additional common symptoms include aches and pains, muscle weakness, and difficulty breathing (dyspnea).[rarediseases.org]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

  • Thalassemia

    […] nutrients and can cause malnutrition Bronze skin Cutaneous iron deposition damages the skin and enhances melanin production by the melanocytes.[pathophys.org] blood cell distribution width High Normal; occasionally high Normal Ferritin Low Normal Normal Mentzer index for children (MCV/red blood cell count) 13 13 13 Hb electrophoresis[aafp.org] He presented with chest discomfort and progressive dyspnea. Early echocardiogram showed mild pericardial effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    BACKGROUND: Sickle-cell disease increases the risk of malnutrition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He presented with progressive severe dyspnea on exertion and lower extremity edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Coexisting conditions such as malnutrition and malaria may affect the feasibility, safety, and benefits of hydroxyurea in low-resource settings.[doi.org]

  • Anemia

    Our investigations ruled out most of the known causes of anemia including infection, uncontrolled bleeding, underlying systemic disease, malnutrition, immune hemolytic anemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Acute anemia presents with symptoms owing to acute blood loss; chronic anemia may present with worsening fatigue, dyspnea, lightheadedness, or chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Iron Deficiency

    However, there is limited information on the diagnosis of and therapy for ID in HF in SSA, where infections and malnutrition are more likely to influence the situation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Average size of RBCs (MCV) — may be decreased Average amount of Hb in RBCs (MCH) — may be decreased Increased variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width (RDW[labtestsonline.org.au] The physiological consequences include fatigue, lethargy, and dyspnea; conversely, iron repletion in iron-deficient individuals has been shown to improve exercise capacity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Liver Disease

    Malnutrition itself is a negative prognostic indicator of survival.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations usually include dyspnea, orthodeoxia (increasing hypoxemia with erect position), platypnea (improvement of dyspnea with flat position), cyanosis, and[ssa.gov] Study the association malnutrition/CLD severity and malnutrition/outcome. METHODS:: Observational, prospective study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Comorbidity of dysphagia was 36.1% in patients with acute exacerbation of CHF, and cognitive dysfunction and malnutrition may be an independent predictor of dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] blood cell distribution width II - Prognostic implications Many studies have shown anaemia to increase mortality and morbidity in HF patients ( 1, 5, 8, 9 ) and to cause[web.archive.org] Features due to left heart failure: Dyspnea, orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea: These symptoms develop due to congestion of the lungs.[symptoma.com]

  • Heart Failure

    […] aortic or pulmonary stenosis, aortic coarctation) Hypertension Systolic ventricular dysfunction or failure may be caused by the following: Myocarditis Dilated cardiomyopathy Malnutrition[emedicine.medscape.com] blood cell distribution width II - Prognostic implications Many studies have shown anaemia to increase mortality and morbidity in HF patients ( 1, 5, 8, 9 ) and to cause[web.archive.org] We introduced oxycodone for medically refractory dyspnea instead of morphine because of the patient's renal insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
